Having seen all of the movies Edgar Wright has directed except A Fistful of Fingers, I like Shaun of the Dead best. Wright also directed Baby Driver, The World's End, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Hot Fuzz; they are all worth seeing. Shaun of the Dead is much more funny than scary, though I had forgotten that it and its zombies are a bit slow. The cast features familiar faces from the British TV show Spaced, which Wright also directed, as well as The Office (UK) and Black Books. The movie is rated R for zombie violence/gore and language.

SHAUN OF THE DEAD is a smart, funny homage to zombie movies while also maintaining its own identity instead of relying entirely on genre cliches.

The first part of a trilogy and the best one; and a wonderful parody for horror-lovers to see how Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright frantically play with the cliches of the genre.

This is a good movie with some genuine laughs in it- though I do think that some people over rate the movie at times. Worth watching though if you haven't seen it.

Unfunny zombie spoof. Predictable from the word "go".

This movie! The actors know how to deliver their lines and give this zombie movie the perfect amount of comedy to make you forget that it's a zombie movie :)

One of the funniest movies ever! Still really fun a second time through! Edgar Wright's humor is not all dialogue, there is humor in the framing of shots, physical humor, funny sounds/music, etc.

Start your Halloween Season off with some laughs. The "British" humor mixed with Zombie gore make for an endearing and fun filled good time.

Shaun: Look, I don't care what the telly says, all right? We *have* to get out of here. If we don't they'll tear us to pieces, and that is really going to exacerbate things for all of us.
